The following campaign has worked brilliantly over the last 2 weeks:

Now we just need 30 more questions in the next 24 hours to meet the goal!

If you really don't want to ask a question (not even one that you can self-answer), then you can:

Many people have told me that they love this site, and that they feel this site is something that the community has needed for a very long time.

But I fear too many people don't want to be involved in the dirty, boring, and energy-consuming work that a very small number of us have had to do in order for you to be able to enjoy having what we've built for you here.

This includes:

  • advertising,
  • raising awareness to the 1000s of matter modelers on other SEs who aren't yet aware of us,
  • asking questions (i.e. making contributions)
  • 90% of our traffic comes from HNQ, so ask more questions and support our existing HNQ.

Your hard-work in helping keep this community strong, is very much appreciated!

  • $\begingroup$ How many questions are left to ask to keep the site alive and how many more hours do we have? $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 21:11
  • $\begingroup$ 23 more questions in about 20 more hours :) I know you still have a lot of unanswered questions from Physics.SE that can be transferred here (even if you're no longer interested, others might find them useful)! $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 21:12

    $\begingroup$ I will try to ask a few more questions in addition to the ones I have asked before. I believe this site should exist because there is nothing like it on the Stack Exchange and it is a community of help, where everyone has been friendly and helpful. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 21:15
  • $\begingroup$ We have worked very hard on getting it approved by the Stack Exchange company: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122958/matter-modeling, and we are still trying our best to help it stay strong :) $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 27, 2020 at 21:17
  • $\begingroup$ Comments (on chemistry.se) have a tiny chance of surviving the first 24 hours if they just blatantly ask to move the question to mm; I can't remember how many I had already have to remove. They will be deleted with prejudice, if they could be conceived as suggesting the question is off topic on chemistry, when they are not k of while it isn't decided). $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 28, 2020 at 14:04

This is how our stats look as of now.

We are doing EXCELLENT in terms of user base and are OKAY according to other metrics. However the most important metric Stack Exchange considers for site maturation is questions per day. We have a 24-hour window opportunity to become excellent in this aspect also.

We are so close and it will be a huge disappointment if we miss it by a small margin.
